E: What time is Jake's game tomorrow?
Me: The same time as yours.
E: The EXACT same time, like 6 o'clock?
Me: Uh huh, 6 on the dot.
E: Can you call my coach and tell him I am not going to be there?
Me: Why aren't you going to be there? Your team needs you, it's your last game.
E: Who's going to be the bat boy at Jake's game if I'm not there?
Me: I'm sure they'll manage.
E: (thinking) Mom, will you call Jake's coach and tell him I can't come because it's my last game?
Me: I am sure he will understand.
